ticker Posted February 1, 2010 Share Posted February 1, 2010 98 4x4 manual trans, 122,000 miles. My fuel consumption has been horrendous lately. It was never great but I went from getting 250-300 miles between fill ups to getting less than 200. I had a cel for the knock sensor but it went off by itself. I was hoping it may have been a loose connection, but I know that at some point It will need to be replaced. Other than that the pathy seems to run fine. It's winter time and pretty cold out some days but I've never seen mpgs get so bad. for exmple I drove to Cincinnati today, 1.5 hours 180 miles ish there and back and used a full tank of gas! Seems a bit extreme. Ideas of things to check? Also when I fill up the gauge has recently been stopping at just above the 3/4 mark. Ideas on what would cause this and/or possible fixes? Is it possible that I have that 1/4 tank to spare and don't know it? Not really interested in running out of gas trying to find out.
